Weather causes accidents; rain to linger

There were significantly more accidents than usual Tuesday morning on San Diego County’s highways due to wet weather, authorities said.

Light rainfall around the county contributed to 50 accidents reported between midnight and 9 a.m., according to California Highway Patrol spokesman Officer Ray Scheidnes.

About two-thirds of those crashes, or 34, occurred between 6 and 9 a.m., Scheidnes said.

On a typical dry day, the CHP reports a total of 50 to 75 accidents in a full 24-hour span.

According to the National Weather Service, the wet weather may linger into tonight, when there’ll be a 20 percent chance of showers in coastal and valley areas and a 30 percent chance in the mountains and deserts. The mountains may also get thunderstorms, forecasters said.
